Sheesh and people hated the look of the Ford Edsel line-up with their grills (which looks ok otherwise to me)! Also young people like me wouldn't be able to afford BMW anyways, especially if we're starting out lol...

Nah man.. i think BMW are just trying toooooo hard. They should just relax. Making a car with no engine does not means it must not look like one with an engine. Keep the small grill, dont complicate the design... i mean look at the E46 and E92 M3, thats how u design a car. There's only one modern BMW that makes sense and looks like a BMW and i absolutely love it...and that is the 2021 M5 (all specs).

I am not in the know … was there a big management change within BMW from the F generation of cars to the G generation? There’s no way you go from the E and F generations to the G generation in such abrupt and self sabotaging fashion without some new arrogant big wig being in the seat

I think BMW's going towards a downward slope, unfortunately we'll never know if they would recover from this situation. Hope they will though... This year they made an exit out of Formula E, as a race team sponsor though Andretti Autosport is still going strong. They've made an M4 DTM car for 2021 only for the regulations to change in DTM, and they have to make an M4 GT3 to race there. And then there's the IX.... boy they're really pushing it with that massive grill, and the complaints from the social medias don't help that much either. As for the grille, I personally think they could just cut the kidney grille in half with a carbon fibre or plasic bumper and merge the bottom half together making it look better and more renewed in apppearance.

I think BMW has been meticulously trying to rival Mercedes in each and every aspect, which changed their image and taste. Then Tesla came up with all its revolutions, and BMW has rolled over twisting between those two rivals.

Agree with doug. I left bmw fanboy club in 2012 after owning 13 Bmws... mostly 90s and 2000s models. LAst one was an X6 50i that gave me hell because it had the new 4.4 twin turbo so it spent a lot of time in service department but I did have good ones. I put over 75k miles trouble free on a 07 e60 550i sport.

Doug you nailed it. BMW became a bloated and aimless behemoth that probably has missed the curve in the road and is headed for a cliff faster than they realize. Like you it is hard for me to reconcile the current company with the peak of 2001, or even a pretty good brand 10 years ago. It’s like they combined the worse McKinsey and German corporate practices and slapped a turbo on the whole mess.

I have owned 5 BMW's over the past 25 years. The last one was a 645 convertible. Best one I ever had was a 2001 745IL. No possibility I will ever own another one of these pathetic pieces of junk. They are made by a bunch of leftist woke retards. Next stop bankruptcy or selling $25,000 Evs' to morons who wear stocking caps in the summer. Sad but these assholes deserve it.

Edit: They are trying really hard to young people-and those are the only people who can't afford it.

I have very strong mixed feelings about the i3. It's a great little car in of itself but, woefully overpriced. The main thing that baffles me is that for a car company that could have easily built a direct competitor to the model S back in 2012 went and built a competitor to the LEAF. Why?! Why the i3? Had they badged the i3 as a Mini it would have been a better success. And it's not like they crammed an electric motor and battery into one of their ICE cars and sold the bare minimum to pass in CARB states. No, they went and built the i3 from the ground up with new technology. It's just baffling.

I drove an i3, and it's a fun car. That's until you get out of it and look at the car. It's still hideous. The tech of the carbon fiber is very cool. Now just make a carbon fiber 3 series EV without huge nostrils and the car will sell.

If you're going to use the phrase "Okay, Boomer," you've lost. Really, that's the best argument you can come up with? Sad. Just sad that you can't create your own thoughts. That being said, the double kidney grill was one thing - it was sleek, subtle, understated, yet distinct. Why it had to grow to tumor-like proportions is beyond me.
